Re: Cable My Street

I was told a "spotter" would get in contact with me ... just wondering if this is likely to happen, or should I just sign up to BT again for another 18 months? (I've only been waiting 6 years to try and get this resolved ... I'm sure another 18 months won't make much of a difference lol)

Re: Cable My Street

Usually where this has happened a re-assessment of the infill build cost has proved to be too much for the revenue it could earn. VM will not consider infilling to individual houses, & even if every house was interested in joining VM have to recover the cost of their outlay in a resonable time.

Re: Cable My Street

Hi,

We live in a  cul de sac, street before this has Virgin cable and many households in our street want to get faster broad band.

 The cable junction box is around 30-40 meter from 1st house in our street. How can we request cable to our neighbourhood  .

 Our street postcode is BR4-9RA.

Thanks

Re: Cable My Street

from https://www.virginmedia.com/postcode-checker

How much coverage does Virgin Media have around the UK?
We currently reach just over 44% of homes in the UK and we’re expecting that to rise to almost 53%. We’re aiming to connect around 4 million extra homes and businesses. Pretty cool, right?

When will my area have access to Virgin Media services?
We’re always working on and updating our plans, and if you’ve registered for email updates we’ll be able to drop you a line to confirm when we’ll be coming to your area with our fibre broadband and cable tv products.

Is there anything I can do to get Virgin Media in my area sooner?
We’re afraid not, but even if you can’t get our services now, things are always changing. Sign up for our email updates and we’ll drop you a line if we know something’s coming your way.
